Little did I know that I was hitting the sweet spot on that day. As soon as I got into Provo Canyon, I could tell there was a plenty of color. As I drove east into Heber, the color was intensifying. I was beginning to feel that I was in for a special treat.
It was an interesting week for hiking and photography. Here are some of the best of the best.
Summer Fun is the best fun. This post covers a backyard music fest, tubing the Provo River and multiple hikes.
As we were nearing the apex of the day's hike, we heard a noise off in the distance. It was a loud whhhrrrrr. Right after hearing it, we both recognized it as the sound of a zip line.
Some of my favorite snaps from the past week's hikes in Utah.
However, twice in the past week I have felt impressed to take the 4 mile drive to Utah Lake. I was not disappointed either time. The first visit, I came across ice fisherman and on today's visit, I found the broken ice sheets at sunset.
Then all of a sudden, I saw an American flag vigorously waving in the stiff breeze to my left. I started to walk toward it and then realized it was perched on the very edge of a sheer rock cliff.
Our goal today was to get to the top of Buffalo Peak. In May, we made up to the base of the last steep push to the peek. However, Ann and I were so distracted by the flowers, as shown in the post from May, that we ran out of time and said we would have to come back and do it again.
Three things made today's hike fantastic. First, Ann joined me. She is a good and adventurous hiking companion. Second, most of the hike was new. Third, the scenery was stunning.
